I use a headlamp, reflective vest, and pepper spray that straps to my hand. And I never run outside with earphones because I want to keep aware of my surroundings.

u/KaleAndChickenSalad · 10 pointsr/AskWomen

I used to, back when I had crazy people stalking me. I don't anymore.

I like pepper spray with a hand strap and sprays a dye to identify the person.

maybe pick up some bear mace instead of a gun?

Here's a few I snagged from my recently ordered list.

Secure USB Drive - For storing scans of important documents.

Mylar Blankets - Ridiculously thin. Good to keep in the car or every day carry bag for a variety of situations.

Camp Suds - Or alternately hand sanitizer. Both useful to stay healthy in Flu season or another outbreak that spreads via contact.

Emergency Whistle - Small enough to keep on a keychain. Loud enough to get attention when it's needed.

Mylar Bags + Oxygen Absorbers - If you're prepping, putting a hundred pounds or so of white rice in 5 gallon buckets is a great way to get started on a long term food supply without breaking the bank. Put it in these and it will stay fresher longer.

Water BOB - Great little device for if/when you know the water supply may be at risk. It's a cheap way to be able to store 100 gallons in preparation for an emergency.

Pepper Spray - The security product you can take most places.

Starter First Aid Kit - Gotta get that going some how. This one has a hard shell which is nice for tossing it in a pack. You'll have to fill it out with what you're likely to need.

Mainstay 2400 Calorie Bars - They stay good through some pretty extreme highs and lows which makes them ideal for tossing in a car. They last about 5 years or so and don't require any water to make them. They're very handy as they're a purchase and forget about them item (for a few years anyway) that lets you have some immediate food for however long you have them stocked for.

Life Straw - A personal filter for waterborne bacteria. Most water purification methods have some significant cost to them, but this one is a great inexpensive item to get started with.

There's a ton of little things on Amazon that are kind of cool to have on hand, but I'd recommend snagging whatever is most likely to help you in whatever your situation is likely to be. If you live in a wildfire prone area... the usb drive would be a wise start. Earthquakes? The emergency whistle. Bad neighborhood, pepper spray. You get the idea. Good luck!

u/triplehelix013 · 7 pointsr/homedefense

Alarm systems and Ring doorbells are reactive rather than proactive. They help the bad guys get caught after they break into your home and steal your stuff or injure/kill the occupants.

You want to be proactive. My 2 main focuses would be the following:

  1. Make it difficult for someone to get into your apartment.
  2. Give yourself the means to protect yourself if your apartment is breached.

    Things to think about for Main focus 1 (security):

    As far as making it difficult for someone to get into your apartment, having the appearance of a hard target will help. Beware of dog signs are supposedly effective for homes, I don't know how they work for apartments. May be worth researching.

    How secure is your door? How deep do the screws go into the door frame on the bolt? If it is less than 3 inches replace them. Consider a door jam, I don't have one of these yet but have heard great things about their effectiveness of resisting doors getting kicked in. Obviously won't help while you are out but is great for when you are inside.

    How secure/reachable are your windows? Is it feasible that someone could get to your window with or without a ladder? Secure your windows as best you can. I am a fan of security screens for windows but on an apartment I doubt you are going to want to install those.

    Do you have a balcony? How secure is the door/slider? If it is a door consider a door jam like for the front door. If it is a slider then make sure you have a security bar. Glass is a weakpoint, I like security screens as for windows, but if not an option security film may be.

    Things to think about for Main focus 2 (defense):

    I saw in a previous comment you are not comfortable having a gun in your house. I would suggest you get comfortable with it. A firearm is the most effect tool to use in self defense because it is a distance tool. It can be used to stop a threat before they get within range to do lethal damage. Also it is not uncommon for armed robbers to be equipped with stolen firearms themselves and you will be left at their mercy praying they are just thieves and not murderers. If you do decide to get a firearm to protect yourself and your home get some training. A good instructor will make you comfortable with firearm safety and help you develop good practices early to be safe and effective with a firearm. I realize you might not want to consider this option and it is your right to choose whatever you feel comfortable with but I wanted to mention it anyway.

    Non-firearm defense tools you could utilize is flashlights, pepper spray, blunt objects (as lethal as firearms but not as effective for self defense), sharp objects (also as lethal and less effective), stun guns (can be effective against weak willed opponents).

    Personally I always have a 800 Lumen flashlight, knife, and pepper spray on my body. In my home and car I also keep a 1000 lumen flashlight and large fixed blade knives. Although I would hope to never be in such a fight for my life that I have exhausted all my firearms and have to use them.

    I would highly recommend you get a bright flashlight you are comfortable carrying with you and pepper spray. A bright flashlight can be blinding in low light, if you have to deploy it shine it in their eyes and use that opportunity to see what is in their hands. Pepper spray is not very effective against determined attackers but may be enough to buy you some time to escape.

    You may also want to look into a stun gun to use when walking the dog to deploy if the pepper spray fails to stop your assailant. I have two flashlight/stungun combos for walking the dog.

    You only get one life, when it comes time to act or die; act with everything you got and the tools you have available to yourself at that time. Hopefully you will never have to deploy those defense tools but keeping them handy could be the difference between a long life and one that ends that afternoon.

    Good luck and stay safe
u/kmaschan · 5 pointsr/running

I always run with pepper spray if I'm alone. You can get it on Amazon for $8 ( It comes with a strap so it literally sits on your hand, you don't even have to grasp it.

u/redavid · 4 pointsr/running

I think you're better suited with a can of pepper spray than a knife.

I have a small can with a hand strap that I like.

I'm not aware of any states that ban it outright, though it's possible some might have limits about strength or size.

u/zaphriel · 3 pointsr/creepyPMs

Hi. I agree with all the other posts about looking into monitoring for evidence to stop the stalker using the police.

The only thing I'd add is that everyone seems to have overlooked your personal safety here. Hopefully one of these will be near you.

And I'd also look into to carrying something for your personal safety. Something like this would give you a good bang for your buck.

I don't mean to scare you, but as stated before, you really can't predict crazy and being prepared is better than being sorry.

Best of luck.

u/fuck_im_dead · 3 pointsr/Portland That sabre? I have the one with dye in it as well, hopefully I don't need to use it but I do love the hand strap for when I go running along the swc at dusk.

u/llmmd · 3 pointsr/C25K

If I ever run at night, I carry pepper spray. Even if I never have to use it, it makes me feel safer. The one I have has a strap so it just sits in the palm of your hand.

u/WarlizardGamingForum · 2 pointsr/running
u/Belo42 · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I've found myself in this exact same predicament. You have to be aware of the situation you're in and how vulnerable you are when you're out by yourself. I use to run, at night, alone, in an area where a women was abducted some years prior. Trust me I kept my music low, my eyes open, and mace in hand. The risk is there but that's no reason to live your life in fear. Bad things happen all the time, weather we're ready for them or not.

I would recommend a self defense class, some spray, and reevaluating your options.

u/TheOnlyCaveat · 2 pointsr/running

I have this pepper spray I carry if I'm worried I'll be somewhere with loose dogs or sketchy people. I've never had to use it, but it's super light and straps onto your hand so you really don't notice it much.

u/GreenSkyFish · 2 pointsr/ForeverAlone

Normally id give you a long thought out reply but im really tired right now. Step 1, buy this:

now youre young so you may stil care about gender roles and feel "why would i need to crary papper spray"

The truth is, young kids are dumb. You already know your bullies run in groups. You fought them off once, but what if they catch you by surprise, what if they have weapons, they can really do some damage to you.

No matter what, if you have papper srpay tyou carry with you, it will really amlplefiy your self defense abilities. Its just a good precatuion to have. I would also honestly maybe consiedr tlking to the police officer about your hraassment from these guys. Tell thehead of the church or the main pastor just so he is AWARE of the history between you and these kids so later when something goes wrong, tehy cant try to blame it on you

u/missionfbi · 2 pointsr/creepyencounters

I am glad you are okay. Pepper spray helps me feel safer.

u/VideUltra · 2 pointsr/uberdrivers

Bad idea. You won't hit him hard enough to take him out of the action, just enough to get him angry. Good way to get yourself killed by a wacko. Get pepper spray, the gel kind so it won't blow back at you, and a gun.


u/TheBarbarion · 2 pointsr/running

SABRE RED Pepper Gel Spray - Police Strength - Runner with Adjustable Hand Strap (Max Protection - 35 bursts, up to 5x's More)

u/SgtBaxter · 1 pointr/bicycling

I'd suggest getting some pepper spray or mace that straps to the back of your hand.

Putting it in a saddle bag or carrying it in your jersey pockets means it's not accessible, and if someone does assault you, then you won't have the time to retrieve it.

Something like this

u/thorgom · 1 pointr/mbti

This should help

u/nawaJ · 1 pointr/indianapolis

Pepper spray has a usage distance of 10ft or more and cost $5-10. That is much better than having to be close enough to an attacker to use a taser.

A quick google says you can have a taser if you are over 18 in Indiana, so I assume you can use them for self-defense.

I just received The Jogger via Amazon. It contains red dye, effective at ten feet, police-strength, has a hand-strap, and a quick-release trigger for $6 with free shipping on prime. I bought one for me and one for the GF.

u/HelgaG_Pataki · 1 pointr/FrugalFemaleFashion

I run outside by myself and I’ve found I like having a pepper spray on my wrist like [this](SABRE RED Pepper Gel Spray - Police Strength - Runner with Adjustable Hand Strap (Max Protection - 35 bursts, up to 5x’s More) I wear it on my left wrist to easily access it with my right hand. I like that it’s on display, I feel that it gives the perception that I am going to fight back. If I get into a situation that I feel uneasy about, simply switch the entire unit to your dominate hand to be on alert. The strap makes it harder to drop, which is really useful as a fairly clumsy person.

I also just want to say my heart really goes out to you. That’s a terrifying experience and I really wish you to best. We can be as prepared as possible and sometimes the universe just works against us.

u/slid3r · 1 pointr/CCW

Pepper spray. It's cheap. Here's two good ones:

SABRE RED Pepper Spray - Police Strength - Runner with Hand Strap (Max Protection - 35 shots, up to 5x's more)

Pepper Enforcement (Pack of 4) Splatter Stream Police Grade 10% OC Self Defense Pepper Spray - Max Strength Law Enforcement Formula - Pack of Four 2-Ounce Flip Top Canisters - 4 Year Shelf Life Cannot Be Shipped To: AK, HI, MI, NJ, NY, NC, SC, or Foreign Countries

u/Tahns · 1 pointr/AbandonedPorn

Save yourself the legal hassle and the inevitable media shitstorm if the person happens to be a "photo negative" of you. I would say pepper spray would probably be about as wise as it comes. Completely incapacitates a person in the moment it's needed, but causes no longterm affects or death.

If the person is high, that might make it more of a health problem, idk but I'd still say its the best option.

u/SentimentalSentinels · 1 pointr/running

You can buy a canister with a hand strap to make it harder for it to be grabbed off you.

u/Scyth3 · 1 pointr/running

Here ya go, some folks in my running club carry these (or attach it to their hydration belt):

u/Vio_ · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

This bad boy. 35 hits, 10 foot range (some will have longer ranges), small enough to carry in a back pocket or small purse pocket. I carry mine in my back pocket whenever I go walking. I'm more worried about loose dogs though (also a good reason to carry it). I personally prefer the one with the key ring.

Collapsable batons are also possible, but they're bulky, can be hard to handle in a fight, and can get lost in a purse. The most important thing to understand is that your weapon can always be used against you. Batons are wicked numbers, because they have physics on their side. The collapsible component adds even more energy than a regular baton/stick, because of the velocity factor in the same way a police door buster often has moving components (sometimes inside itself)

The one, real goal in a confrontation is escape, not escalation. That's why I like the spray. It's long range (6 ft is enough time for an attacker run up to someone and stab them), non-lethal, and surprising. If you or her use it, it WILL get in your eyes through blowback. However, you personally will be expecting it and your attacker will not. When they are writhing in the ground in pain, she will be writhing too, but also escaping as fast as she can.

Tip: Don't attach your spray to your keys. You don't want your keys to get lost in a fight OR become police evidence. Keys can also be used as a weapon, but that's really a last resort.

u/friardon · 1 pointr/running

I run with a small can that came with a little wrist strap thing (You can see it here)

Watch a video or two of how to use it. And if you do, run to a safe place and call 9-1-1 afterward (especially if you used it on a human as it can cause an allergic reaction).

u/Squishy_Cat · 1 pointr/asktransgender

It might be a good time to mention getting some pepper spray. Sabre Red makes some small ones that are a gel type (much less chance of it blowing back in your own face) and they're only about $9 on Amazon. They have a slightly bigger size for $13 that has a longer range too.

u/casperrosewater · -1 pointsr/bicycletouring

I use this sabre brand and just hang the elastic strap over my bar grip.

Don't forget it could also be useful against rednecks with guns.
